Zizeeria knysna

African Grass Blue - A very small butterfly with only a 18-23 mm wingspan the females are slightly larger. It flies nearly all year round. I saw these in Cabanas De Tavira every day in the same area. They seemed to frequent a grass lawn which was watered most days. They are quite rare and even considered an endangered species in Portugal.
